I have posted a few times before in the new members section just recently. I have a herniated disc L4 & 5 I was just diagnosed a coupla weeks ago. So far I have tried acupuncture and have had 2 weeks of Physical therapy and found a good massage therapist.She worked on my back yesterday and for a few hours it felt alot better. I had a realativly good weekend and then I went back to PT today and after that I had alot of pain in my leg again.
I wanted to ask if some of you could give some advice on epidural injections-how helpful and how long they last and any complications???? I see my Orthopedist again on 8/25 and i know he is gonna suggest that I have one.
Anyway I am glad that I found you guys and it so helps to talk about this stuff. I am hoping to avoid surgery at all costs and that this will resolve itself soon. I need to get back to work and also playing my drums!! Thanks for all your help Rick
